Susan Kane: News

January 2013 Update

 A Word Child continues to get lots of play on the airwaves.  It debuted at number 36 on the Folk DJ chart for December, and “New York Winter” tied at the number 12 song of the month. It’s holding steady at #15 on the Cashbox/RMR Folk Top 50, and at #2 on the RMR/Americana Internet chart. It is also #25 on the Alternate Root’s Top 66 Int’l Airplay chart, and #48 on the AMA’s Internet chart.  “Loser” was named among the 28 best cover songs of the year on the blog Cover Lay Down.

On January 27, I visited Ron Olesko at WFDU FM for an in-studio interview and performance.

Some of you may know that I recently released my third CD, A Word Child.  If you haven't heard anything from it, I invite you to hear some tracks from it.  There are so many ways to do this--it's streaming on my website, you can get samples at cdbaby.com, at Amazon, iTunes, on my facebook music page.  You can buy real or digital CDs from these outlets as well, or directly from  my website, securely through Paypal. A Word Child is in the midst of a radio campaign with the capable help of Lisa Grey's Blue River Productions, and I am happy to say the airwaves have been most welcoming.  Iain Anderson's BBC Scotland show aired it as Album of the week of December 10, calling it an early contender for one of the best albums of the year.  For the weeks of December 10 and December 17, it also  showed up as one the five most added albums to the Americana radio chart!  What a way to end the year!

On December 21st, I have an in-studio interview on WHUD-FM:

A long time coming, but good things are worth waiting for? I hope you'll enjoy looking around. If you were familiar with the old site, you will see a lot of familiar material. My goal was to get a more modern look and architecture. Let me know what you think.  I'll be tweaking it as time goes on--listener input much appreciated!!  Drop me a line, or visit the guestbook page.
